Battle, 27, of Bayonne, was charged with disorderly conduct, according to Police Capt. Eric Amato.

Battle was taken into custody at around 10:22 p.m. yesterday from the area of West 18th Street. Officers responded to the area numerous times on reports of a loud group violating the City’s noise ordinance and disturbing area residence.

As officers were dispersing the crowd and speaking with an individual involved, Battle approached them in an aggressive manner, took a fighting stance, and began shouting profanities at the officers.

After refusing the officers’ commands to cease his disruptive behavior and leave the area, Battle was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct, police said.
